Some people see dating as a necessary evil, an in-between state, a means to a hopefully happily-ever-after ending. But, not 27-year-old NYC native Maud Deitch.
The Gawker Media content producer and editor has had her share of serious, long-term relationships, but she's been single and dating for the past two years...and genuinely loving every minute of it. Though NYC has a reputation as an immensely populated — and equally lonely — place to be solo, Deitch relishes her relationship status and makes Gotham City's singles scene work for her and her dating style.
Ahead, Deitch lets us in on the details of her love life and gives us 10 of her most insightful tips, in our new series, About Face. From how she stays true to her personal style and beauty routine to some of her most memorable dating stories, livin' la vida solo in the Big Apple doesn't sound half bad.
